Our Partnerships for the Implementation of Projects

Our Understanding of Partnership

Our involvement is based on mutual understanding between equal-level partners. Our role is to mediate and guide local civil society organisations in order to effectively implement children's rights.

Based on openness, clarity and mutual respect, we support our partners in carrying out their campaigns and projects for the implementation of children’s rights and human development.


Creating sustainable development is our concern, because whether we live in the global North or South, all of us are responsible for the life chances of future generations. We believe that these can only be enhanced by collaborating in trustful partnerships.

Our Contribution

We offer efficient and effective expert advice, based on our experiences in different African countries:

  • Support and guidance on strategy and concept development for a rights-based approach
  • Guidance on drafting project proposals
  • Involvement in financing projects and support in looking for further means of finance and cooperation partners
  • Support in project management (planning, setting up and leading a participatory monitoring system, evaluating etc.)
  • Guidance and collaboration on formulating guidelines, procedures or handbooks (“best practices”)
  • Guidance in management, including financial management, administration and staff management
  • Guidance in increasing public relations and advocacy work for children’s rights

The change towards greater sustainability has to come from local participants who have a vision and a holistic approach to work, and are not restricted to short-term aid.
